The Book People

A community of book lovers who want to share in a spontaneous thread of commentary and insight into everything about books, magazines and the printed word.
The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours. - Alan Bennett, The History Boys http://www.thepeopleproject.com/book-people/quotes
